Academics Rating

Depending on the classes that you take the classes with either be very large or approximately a high school size. In my experience, you can get just as much attention from the professors in a large class as a small class it wall depends on your wants to communicate. The professors always seem to be ready for any questions any students have and are always willing to give extra help.


Academics Rating

The workload and classes can accommodate nearly anyone's lifestyle within reason. The academic quality and faculty are my main reasons for choosing Ball State. If I have to work to pay tuition, there are classes available nearly all the time, and the class sizes are small enough to still feel like I am a person, not a number.
